...grew up in Seville (Spain) and moved to Connecticut where she completed her undergraduate degree in Chinese Philosophy and Architectural Design at Wesleyan University. She pursued graduate studies in Linguistics at The CUNY Graduate Center and Translation and Interpretation Studies at Hunter College (both in NYC). As Linguist, she has taught at numerous institutions of higher education, provided multi-lingual interpretation and translation in various arenas, and contributed to sociolinguistic, language acquisition, and language documentation research projects. Her affinity for the power of image and sound to tell a story has permeated her existence since childhood, when her father first planted the seed by taking her to see films such as Nosferatu and Casablanca (to name two). Presently, she writes, produces, and collaborates on projects with her partner in crime, İlker.
